Welcome to CHICKAHOMINY RECREATION SITE!
One of eastern Oregon’s most popular fishing spots, man-made Chickahominy Reservoir was first
stocked with rainbow trout in the summer of 1967. It is still stocked once or twice a year with
fingerlings and legal-size fish. The water level fluctuates with the amount of spring run-off and can
be low at times, affecting the availability of fisheries. The recreation site offers 28 campsites, a
fish cleaning station, drinking water, vault restrooms and a boat ramp. The extensive valley where
Chickahominy Reservoir lies is surrounded by foothills, distant buttes and rough ridges - a landscape
that provides far-reaching views of the open high desert country.
